    Default Compilation of the TC Top Recommended Lists

    Welcome to the TC Top Recommended Lists project!

    The project philosophy is summarized below:

    - The TalkClassical members with a wide variety of interests and experiences can reach a consensus on the top works from a variety of musical forms.
    - The process should lead to some interesting debate and discussion regarding these various specialized areas of music.
    - The resulting list will be posted as a Sticky Thread and may be used as reference points for both newcomers and long-time classical listeners to the world of classical music and to specific areas of classical music as defined by these lists.

    An up-to-date, downloadable, and printable version of all the compiled lists is now available here: TC Top Recommended Lists.pdf.

    Finally, don't forget to check out our current list thread, The TC Top 100 Recommended Choral Works. Your input is much appreciated!

    I couldn't help noticing that Carmina Burana by Orff was MISSED on the top Choral Works list. I think that goes to show that around here, big names get skipped because we're so knowledgeable of classical music, almost too much. But Carmina Burana is a serious work, I'm sad it was forgotten.
